24 Festive Tasks: Door 12 - St. Andrew's Day: Task 3

Guards! Guards!  - Terry Pratchett Danger! -  Arthur Conan Doyle Thomas Cromwell: A Life - Diarmaid MacCulloch The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo - Tom Reiss Interventions: A Life in War and Peace - Kofi Annan The Bone Woman: A Forensic Anthropologist's Search for Truth in the Mass Graves of Rwanda, Bosnia, Croatia, and Kosovo - Clea Koff

Of my favorite reads 2019, surprisingly few already were on my TBR at the beginning of the year, so the year was at least as much a year of "great new catches" as it was for catching up with my TBR.

 

Just looking the books already on my TBR at the beginning of the year, the biggest "catches" of 2019 would have been (in reverse order in which I read them):

 

Terry Pratchett, Guards, Guards

Arthur Conan Doyle, Danger

Diarmaid MacCulloch, Thomas Cromwell

Tom Reiss, The Black Count

Kofi Annan, Interventions: A Life in War and Peace

Clea Koff, The Bone Woman

 

(Task: St. Andrew was a fisherman by trade: Which book(s) from your TBR that you read this year turned out to be the year’s greatest “catch”?)
